Mesothelioma of the pleura is regarded as an uncommon tumour.

The tumour is rarely encountered elsewhere in South Africa. During the past five years, with the exception of the present series, no neoplasm of this nature has been diagnosed amongst 10,000 lungs examined at the Pneumoconiosis Bureau in
